    Many terrible events have taken place in our nation's history. But today far exceeds any before. Because today the United States of America proved beyond a doubt that she has turned her back on the True & Living God.

    america couldn't do it without the help of christians, it was christians who turned their back on the one true God, for a false god named obama.

    I understand what you mean donna. But I don't believe Christians helped. I believe that America did it with the help of "church people". But Christians can't turn their back on God.

    we have only begun to see the demise of this great country, which was founded on Christian principles, but is now led by ungodly democrat socialists.

    YES! Worse than 9/11! That day we were attacked from an enemy without. Today we have been brought down by the enemy within.

    Christians endured the Roman Empire. This is nothing.

    Wow.

    Where is your faith in God?

    And when did the political entity of the United States ever embrace God in a biblical sense?

    God is not surprised or shaken. The gospel is still true. Jesus is Lord. And our calling is still the same. The election of John McCain by the majority of U.S. citizens would not have made us any more righteous than we are now.

    2 points:

    1. They were real Christians not just a bunch of lost church people.
    2. They didn't vote the Roman government in to power.

    Amen! :thumbs:

    We are not saved by the Republican party. We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.

    1. So? If you are a Christian, you will be ok. You are secure in God's hand.
    2. No, it was just ordained by God.

    I never said we were righteous. But as of tonight the majority of us have chosen to follow a man who is the most anti-christ president in history, SAD!

    How many of them ever promoted abortion & homosexual rights? Or how many of them ever said "Whatever our nation used to be it is no longer a Christian nation"?

    America has proved that much longer before last night.

    However, as others have stated God is still in control, and we Christians need to get busy ministering at the local level regardless of which party is in power. We need to minister to the poor, fatherless, and sick, and counsel the young girls not to have abortions. We need to model Jesus in our lives, fulfilling the Great Commission, while disabusing ourselves of the notion that the USofA is somehow God's chosen theocratic nation of the new covenant.

    I believe last night was God's judgment on America for the shedding of innocent blood since 1973 and also the acceptance of sodomy.

    In the Bible, every time God gave the people the ungodly ruler they wanted, it was for judgment.

    I wonder how long it will be before the people who voted for Obama will admit they were wrong.

    Bad times are coming and they will hit ALL of us... :(

    How do we know this isn't part of God's plan? I could be wrong, but I believe the end times are VERY close. Maybe we're already there. The calling away of the church (often called the Rapture), the revealing of the anti-Christ, and the 7 year tribulation could be very near. I am ready for the Lord's coming in the air to take us home. "Even so, come, Lord Jesus."
